We Have Band are releasing this bad boy of a tune on 12th July. I'm in love with this band, and reckon they're one of the most exciting bands out at the moment. This track has been re-mixed by Andrew from Friendly Fires and I'll be playing it on my show this week.

If you ask me the line-up for Isle of Wight this year was pretty much unbeatable. Jay Z, The Strokes, Blondie, Paul McCartney, Vampire Weekend, Florence + The Machine. The only thing it was lacking was the presence of really exciting new bands - but I wasn't expecting much on that front cosidering the festival was sponsored by The Mirror and ITV.
When The Strokes entered the stage on Saturday night I almost died they were so good. They gave a loud, thrashy, energetic, 'better than the record' performance. I danced until the last chord and then again all the way back to the tent. I didn't sleep much that night. I was too happy that I'd just witnessed one of the greatest moments in rock history.
Other highlights were Blondie (who apparantly was wearing a wig but I didnt notice at the time,) Vampire Weekend in the late afternoon sun, Paul McCartney singing Live and Let Die as dark clouds gathered above and setting up our tent in the rain.
I heart festival season, give me MORE!
Last week a good friend of the show - Sarah Palmer played a very loud set at the Death Disco at the Notting Hill Arts Club. She was her usual dramatic self, rocking back and forth as she belted her heart out. 'Sweet Sweet' and 'All I Ever Wanted' were the two punchiest in my eyes. She played the legendary club night Smash and Grab recently too and I'll keep you posted on all her future happenings. I've got a sneaking suspicion she'll be back with some more big dirty shows.
